The BITTER TRUTH About Sugar & How It's Killing You

Episode 501


Sugar is the number-one thing we can all use less of in our lives—in fact, just thinking about it releases insulin! Sugar turns on many mechanisms of disease and death, including inflammation. It fuels cancer and heart disease, it drives hormonal changes, it slows metabolism, and it literally shuts down the body’s ability to burn fat. On top of all that, sugar is highly addictive: the more we eat, the more we want. In this episode of my Masterclass series, I am interviewed by my good friend and podcast host Dhru Purohit about why sugar is so harmful to our health, why the type of sugar really doesn’t matter, and much more.
